Ways of Giving
An outright gift to Oldfields allows us to meet immediate objectives, gives you maximum tax benefits, and is the simplest gift to arrange. When you make a gift of cash you are entitled to an income tax deduction of the amount subject to tax deduction limitations. Gifts may be made in the following ways:
Mail a check payable to Oldfields School.
Use your MasterCard or VISA to give over the phone (443.662.1017) or online.
Double or even triple your donation with a matching gift from your employer. Simply include your company's matching gift form with your contribution.
Securities and Stocks
Gifts of readily-marketable securities or stocks, including mutual funds, benefit you and the School. You receive a tax deduction for the full market value of the appreciated securities you give. If you have held the appreciated securities for more than a year, you avoid capital gains taxes and qualify for a charitable deduction.
In addition to giving appreciated securities as an outright gift, you may choose to make a gift of securities or stocks through a trust, thereby preserving income during your lifetime or the lifetime of your designated beneficiary. The tax advantages vary according to the plan you choose. Donors should consult with a tax advisor for more information.
